From Egypt to Yemen, countries once home to democratic grassroots revolutions now struggle to control political conflict and civil war. The general optimism that stemmed from Tahrir Square in 2011 has given way in many cases to sectarianism and conflict. Why did so many states fail to bring about peaceful democratic change? How have the aftereffects of the Arab Spring contributed to the rise of terrorist organizations like ISIS?

    Forum Mother Jones' Shane Bauer Goes Undercover as a Private Prison Guard In December 2014 Mother Jones senior reporter Shane Bauer took a job as a corrections guard at a Louisiana prison run by the country's second largest private prison company Corrections Corporation of America (CCA).

His experiences became the cover story of Mother Jones' July/August 2016 issue. We'll talk with Bauer about inmates and prisoners alike struggling to survive amid understaffing, violence and poor medical care, as well as his own experience getting swept up in the mentality of being a guard.

    City Arts & Lectures Dacher Keltner We tend to believe that attaining power requires force, deception, manipulation, and coercion. But Dacher Keltner argues that empathy and social intelligence are vastly more important to acquiring and exercising power. In The Power Paradox, Keltner upends the Machiavellian myth and demonstrates how those who are attuned to and engaged with the needs and interests of others wield the most power. Keltners previous books include Born to Be Good: The Science of a Meaningful Life and The Compassionate Instinct. A Professor of Psychology at the University of California at Berkeley and Faculty Director of the Greater Good Science Center, Keltner studies the biological and evolutionary origins of compassion, awe, love, and beauty, as well as power, social class, and inequality.

Owners of the affected diesel vehicles can sell their vehicles back to VW or get them fixed. They will also receive compensation of between $5,100 and $10,000. Separately, VW will contribute $2.7 billion to pollution control projects and spend $2 billion on clean emissions technology.
